DISCLAIMER: The concept of Molten Core and all that that entails belongs entirely to Blizzard Entertainment. This is simply a fan recreation of the dungeon. My partner and I are not benefitting financially in any way from this mod.

WARNING: By itself, this mod functions flawlessly. It may have conflictions with other mods that I have not tested. Please be wary of this with not just this mod, but with all. Make a back-up save or two before installing this mod. I don't want to be blamed for what might happen because of some stupid technical problem. This mod is quite large, so be prepared for a rather lengthy download time.

This mod is a Skyrim recreation of the famous 40-man raid dungeon Molten Core from World of Warcraft. Vast quantities of new content has been added, such as a quest line, new items and creatures, and much more.
Don't worry, you don't need to have played WOW to enjoy this mod and the challenges and glorious loot that it introduces to the game.


New Dungeon: Molten Core (HUGE!)
3 Whole New Armor Sets
7 New Enemy Types, Including a Unique Boss
8 New Weapons
2 New Loading Screens
Many New Unique and Powerful Enchantments
New Mineral: Dark Iron
New Spell: Molten Gout
Everything is lore-friendly!

The dungeon is located near the Honningbrew Meadery outside of Whiterun. The exterior of the Molten Core is a dwemer ruin called Mzachalft. Finding this site will begin the quest line.
Throughout development, MrPieMan and I strived to make the dungeon as lore-friendly as possible, despite it being from another game world. Everything that was added was considered heavily in this respect. You will find that this dungeon is in many ways much like Blackreach in that it is an entire worldspace in and of itself. We hope that you enjoy the sprawling depths of the Molten Core as much as we enjoyed creating it!

Be sure to contact us with any issues you may encounter, and we will be more than happy to do everything we can to help solve your problem!

If you feel curious enough to compare our recreation of Molten Core to the real one in WOW, there are many YouTube walkthroughs available, or you can use the wiki page below.

~Flavor Text~

Let this scrawling serve as a warning to all those who might stumble upon this site. I, Dep-Zedlen, lead a group of my fellow Dwemer into this cavern to survey the area. We made a perilous mistake. The creatures we disturbed by coming down here were far too powerful to overcome. My entire team was incinerated by those monsters before I had the chance to seal off the gate. If you do not wish to suffer the same infernal fate as my comrades, you must keep it shut. The abominations that dwell within will put an end to your life, as well as this world. I hope that my sacrifice keeps those above safe from the horrors of this molten core.

Thank you all for your support!


If you encounter a crash when Ragnaros is summoned, please make sure you have latest version of the mod. This bug should have been fixed by the update. Also, the crash is only occasional. If you try again, Ragnaros will most likely be summoned without a crash. Thank you for your patience with this issue.

Maclever has brought it to my attention that the scene between Ragnaros and Executus before the final boss fight may be bugged when one has the "Non-Hostile Friendly Fire" mod installed alongside this mod. There is apparently a confliction between the way that mod handles factions and how they are used to control the behavior of Ragnaros throughout that scene. I am sorry for this inconvenience. Below is a link to the conflicting mod for those that are curious.

Other than these, no bugs have been found.

A BIG SPECIAL THANKS to PROXiCiDE for all his immensly helpful assistance with scripting and to Tytanis for his absolutely remarkable assistance with making Sulfuras a one-hander for Ragnaros.
Without these two guys, the mod would never have been finished so well. Thanks so much!

***IMPORTANT*** I will be posting many more screenshots and details about this mod very soon. For the time being, I encourage all those interested to subscribe and try it out. We are very anxious for feedback.

***ALSO IMPORTANT*** For all those interested, MrPieMan and I are planning on recreating the famous Shadowfang Keep from WOW as our next project. Keep an eye out! Below is a wiki page with information about that dungeon.

This dungeon is so great, it's really challenging. I went in with my level 71 character with fully enchanted gear, including extra slots from mods... and I still got killed a lot on Adept difficulty, Master difficulty would be suicide I think. The fight with Majordomo Executus was really hard but I did it in the end.

However, Ragnaros doesn't attack at all, and it's impossible to kill him normally as a melee character because you have to stand in the lava to hit him. Magmadar also does not attack, but stands still while you hit him. Also, I think you should have added music from World of Warcraft to the dungeon, as well as some ambient sounds because the dungeon is oddly silent.

Dude, I'm lvl 52 with a full draconic armor and weapons fully enchanted (lvl 100) and I get raped by the first boss, I had to forge a special armor with full fire and magic resistance and wear a shield instead of my dual wielding, then it went better but for the second boss, the dogs respawn 5 secondes after I killed them, don't know if it's a bug by it's a bit bad because the only qay to escapde the fight is to drink invisibility poton.

I didn t finsh it already but I like your mod, just nerf it a bit :)

Nice job dude.
